Our distribution facility is located in the greater Charlotte area, a strategic geographic location due to its central location on the East Coast of the USA, midway between New York, Miami, Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans. This advantageous central location along with the excellent transportation network, provide us with greater market accessibility along with a geographical advantage in receiving and shipping goods and services. As a result we have access to very favorable freight rates from a variety of premier carriers. Within 650 miles of Charlotte are 55 of the country’s top 100 metropolitan areas.
The CHARLOTTE AIR CARGO FACILITY is a global hub for the world’s largest airline, a result of the merger of American Airlines and US Airways. This merger significantly expanded their global network, enabling them to provide full cargo service to many more international destinations. Charlotte is their second-busiest hub, behind only Dallas/Fort Worth.
Charlotte also has a geographic advantage in that the Port of Charleston, S.C., is the same distance as the Port of Wilmington, NC. This gives companies in Charlotte greater flexibility in scheduling shipments. Air service to and from Charlotte is also exceptional, and continues to improve with the current development of the intermodal port facility which will combine rail, air and truck facilities adjacent to a new airport runway, significantly adding to the ease of shipping to and from Charlotte. The city has more than 60 freight forwarders, custom house brokers and professional international service providers, as well as a foreign trade zone, located next to the airport, for duty-free storage of goods pending shipment.
Charlotte Douglas International Airport enjoys a nationwide reputation as one of the best-operated air transport facilities in the country. With all of the support services available, Charlotte provides a top of-the-line connection for moving products and materials efficiently and conveniently throughout the world.
